It's a toss up between the Rev, Firecat and RX-1..each sled brings something new.I would rather wait until the end of the season to see if they all live up to their expectations first. Of course, it's all a matter of opinion.With that said, being a Cat man, I will go with the F7.
There is alot of new weapons on the table for next year. They will have to prove their worthyness over the long haul, not by what the Mags say. I am anxious to read reports at SW next season on the new machines, REV/Firecat/RX1, pros and cons ridden by real people
Looking at the bigger picture I would have to say that the sled of the decade is the RENEGADE.
I say REV, followed by Firecat as runner up, and distant third RX-1.......the only thing the rx-1 has going for it is power, if that is all that mattered the T-Cat and Mach-Z would have traded the honor for years.
I am going to go with the REV, people will be skeptical about the four-stroke of the RX1 and more people like SKI-DOO, lol. Rocketman, I think little suzies and grandmas arms would be ripped off by a 500 fan, so a 800 triple-triple might be a bit much for them. The only thing changed in the F7 is its motor mounting and air intake. Also I'm quite sure that a REV 800 could beat an RX1 in a race, in a jumping competition, and weight also.
With the report sent to the UN by the Bush administration indicating that Global warming scientifically does exist, see the accolades pile up for the RX-1. Bush has done a 180 now that he has had a chance to let his people dig a little deeper and he says changes must be made to the internal combustion engine.
